Rocco's Recovery Fund

Rocco Mongillo is an incredible 4 year old boy who was involved in a tragic accident on 6/3/17 which resulted in the loss of his hand and wrist.   

He has received extraordinary care at Hartford Hospital and Connecticut Children's including multiple surgeries.  

Rocco has a long recovery involving frequent surgeries, physical therapy, occupational therapy and prosthetic fittings and lessons.  Our goal is to support Rocco throughout his rehabilitation and provide future care with this fund. 

His dedicated, loving parents have been by his side taking time off from work to care for him.   Rocco will need love and support from those dearest to him when he goes home. The generous donations will keep Rocco's family close by his side. 

He is a brave little boy who is already adjusting to his new temporary limitation.   We appreciate you taking the time away from your busy life to read this campaign.  

Thank you for supporting Rocco on his journey towards a timely recovery.
